Welcome to Gifty Galore 2016!

Our new Gifty Galore Christmas project season begins July 18th this year and runs through December 19th! And, Anita is back with more wonderful designers! 

We are using the book, Fast, Fun, and More Gifty. It is compiled and written especially for us! Our newest Gifty book is the best ever for preparing a gift-giving extravaganza. There are even MORE small and quick projects. Hey, you'll be able to use the projects in this book all year long!

Get ready… prepare your sewing space, oil the machine, and finish up any UFOs because you’re going to be busy! I challenge you to keep up with us!

  1. Time frame is from July 18th - December 19th, 2016 for the weekly projects.
  2. Please post all project questions on Notions where you will find the complete blog. All information is kept together there for reference later and It's much easier to find!
  3. You can join at any time. If you are not a member of our Quilt With Us Community, click the "Signup and Join" box in the upper-right corner.

Okay Kids.  MaryAgnes NYC has invited us...so let's all go on our virtual New Years Eve Celebration...Meet you in Times Square ..  Dress Warm!
Comment by MaryAgnes/NYC on December 29, 2010 at 1:42pm

Froggie:  Great idea!!  A virtual New Year's Eve in Times Square!!  All Aboard!!


Pepper:  Don't be too hard on winter.  Without it we wouldn't know what cozy means and no one would have invented fireplaces or central heating.  Besides, if we didn't have winter, we couldn't have spring.


Lynne: Good for you.   Bet you blamed it on the RPO (royal post office if there is such a thing). 


Mari:  My plan is to be invited to someone else's house next year.

Wow, Mari, I am ready too! I always have lots of energy right after Christmas for making things. I have several requests from DD1: Two stockings, for her and her fiancee, fabric box, and a 12 days of Christmas wall hanging!

MaryAgnes, I laughed when I read that you will give us directions but not go to Times Square with us! In GiftyLand, there are no crowds, it's not too cold, but a little cool, and it's wonderful!

Dimensional patterns???

Oh yeah, I saw that new line of fabric, Mari, I LOVE IT! I think I need to make some gift bags.

Don't forget about swimming, Lynne! And DH cooking on the grill.

That's funny, Lynne, maybe I can use that excuse this year. Still not finished. ugh. DD1 just left, I am sad. It's quiet here, the boys are hiding, playing video games, DH is eating M&M's, watching TV, and I am talking here! Stealing some M&M's when I can.

Love the card story Lynne!  CACKLE!!!
Comment by Lynne Wurzer on December 29, 2010 at 11:39am
Mary Agnes, I have a list started for next year, but it will change as time goes by.  I always put off making things for my home, so that is what I will be starting with after I get Mom's lap quilt done!  I have a quilt that still needs a bit of embroidery on it from 2009 and that is for my house.  Then there are the ones that I started that were going to be gifts, but never got finished.  I think when I finish them, I will mail them to the recepients wrapped in Xmas paper! LOL!  Way back in the late 80's, I managed to get my Christmas cards all done BEFORE Thanksgiving.  We were living in England at the time.  During the hustle and bustle of that holiday, I misplaced them.  I found them the following March and sent them put!  I heard from everyone I sent cards to that year- What a hoot!

Sorry I don't like anything about winter.I like the sound of lawnmowers,the smell of grass even tho I am allergic.Aah the sound of waves and boats and the smell of campfires.Winter is just plain tooooo long!
Comment by Mari/WA on December 29, 2010 at 10:17am

Yeah, living ain't easy in the snow, that's for sure.  Funny how sounds and smells can really take you back.  I love the sound of boots crunching in the snow!  The sound of significant days off in the PNW!


I'm definitely working from January though Thanksgiving.  When Thanksgiving arrives the plan is to be totally finished except for food.


Hey Diane, we've got some dimensional patterns coming out in the upcoming months that are great for kids.  And, for adults...........
